Eleven weeks till Christmas.

I was told via Facebook that its it's only eleven weeks till Christmas and I panicked.
So I put my thinking cap on and was thinking what am I going to get everyone. I don't want to spend a lot of money as I have two major events to save for next year.
More on that later
So I started pulling out all my scraps and bits and bobs and started working.
I found some off cuts from a quilt I made about three years ago
added some boarders. 

Got some off cuts of wading and the backing from the candle wicking quilt I made about four years ago.
did some binding and viola I have made two sets of four coasters.
this is another set from a quilt I made to give to my aunt in Greece when I visited. I have also finished another one and half sets before quitting for the day. I'll post photos of the next lot on my next post.
I will give a set of coasters and two coffee cups as a christmas gift to each couple. Like my mum and dad, my sister and her hubby and for each other couple
If I get the coffee cups from the reject shop you can pick up some nice ones for $2 - $5 dollars.
That means each couple will only cost $10.00. 
I hope they like them, I have had fun designing each set with what I have.
Will post more pics tomorrow 
See ya
